It's already time for another Blog Hop with Papertrey Ink... where does the time go? I feel like I say that every month...
I was more excited for this month's theme than probably any other so far... take your favourite floral set, combine it with the beautiful colour schemes Nichole prepared, and stamp your heart out. If you spend any time here at all, you know how much I love to stamp my own patterns, and flowers are some of the most fun sets to do that with.
So I have three cards for you today!
The other thing that was really fun this month is that I just sat down and started stamping. I never do that - I always have a plan. But this challenge was something that was so much my comfort zone, I just sat down and let it happen.
Here is the colour palette for my first card:
I chose my Natural Beauties set for this one; I *love* this set. It has every little detail you could ever think of, all included in one little set.
I don't have all of the ink colours, so I did make do with what I have - and I also used some stamping off to allow my card to have a lot of depth.
I think my next card has a pretty vintage vibe to it...
For this one, I got out my Beautiful Blooms II set, as well as the Botanical Silhouettes, and created a pattern that I sort of thought was reminiscent of vintage wallpaper. Here is the graphic:
Again, I had to fake it with a couple of colours, but here is what I came up with:
I also included some elements from Modern Wood Mat to embellish my sentiment.
The last one is probably my favourite one, because I love stamping with Sweet Life *so* much.
This one almost ended up feeling monochromatic, and so pretty. I loved these colours together:
I don't have anything that resembles Limeade Ice (am I missing out?), so I just used a green I have. But all the other colours are there.
Again, I am always *so* happy with how Sweet Life looks, no matter what the colour combination!
Did you make it through all those photos? Thanks for stopping by, and reading through a long post... lots of other pretties to look at, so I am off to join the Hop!
Have a wonderful weekend!
